1.0 out of 5 stars Serious Mastering Error. Get the Blu-ray if possible., 10 Mar 2009
This review is from: Futurama: Into The Wild Green Yonder [DVD] (DVD)
Note: The rating is for the quality of the disc, not its content - as it should be.

Unfortunately it seems that all PAL DVDs of this film (German, UK, etc.) are facing the same problem: The main film has been upconverted from an NTSC(!) master, resulting in a degraded sharpness and interpolation artifacts. Strange enough the bonus material is much sharper and features content coming from real PAL masters (or downsampled HD content). A friend of mine has compiled a comparison page with sample screenshots, but unfortunately due to traffic volume constraints I cannot post a link here.

This is unbelievable and unless you do not really care about image quality that much and have the choice, I urge you to get the Blu-ray disc of this film (which is flawless). Being as it is, this disc should never have left the authoring studio, let alone passed the QA testing... which probably hasn't been done anyway.

As for the content, this is one of the best of the Futurama movies. You will not be disappointed.
